Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Mark Karan Update

Like the Beatles song, he's getting better all the time. Here is what his latest post at carepages.com says:

hey now... its been a while and my apologies for taking so long after leaving the last message about what crappy shape i was in.

i am SO much better now! the mouth sores have pretty much healed. my neck is no longer a nasty, burned mess, my sore throat improves daily and little by little i am tasting certain foods again. hoooooray!

i cannot thank all of you nearly enough for all the love, healing thoughts and visions, prayers, gifts and cards... even cash donations you have offered. you have all helped so much with my healing ...and thru that my growth as a human spirit on the planet. i really am at a loss for words (those of you that know me well know that's a rare thing... LOL).

maile and i have begun an excercise regimen to help us both get back to better health and build up our strength. i am also hoping to get out here and there thru the christmas season to jam locally and get back in shape musically and to connect with that joy which i have missed for most of this past year.

i am so thankful to be alive... much less to be alive and as blessed as i am with good friends, a wonderful (and greatly extended) family, music, dogs, california livin'... yes PLEASE!!! thank you lord... and thank all of you!

much love and lite...

mark

So what happened to Mr. Karan? I'm out of the loop on his apparent misfortune but glad to hear that he is recovering.

Cancer, but I don't remember what part of the body it hit.
